Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  8. Cr*p I thought it said where's Barry's Buddy........ So I'll just take off then. CYA
  9. Taken all the fun out of it 8O ,I remember it from the 60's :(
  10. Barry Buddon has been around since at least 1897 and in WW2 it was a PoW Camp. I believe that Rudolf Hess was held there overnight after his capture in 1941.

    Think it was recently flogged off to the locals for £350,000.
  11. its a tip ....enjoy
  12. Mr C
    I suspect you're thinking about Cultybraggan. Barry Buddon is still a training camp (or it was when I passed it this afternoon.)
  13. Oh aye :oops: you're right!!!!


    That part of the world all looks the same to me.
  14. Arbroath ish
    and 1980 for me
  15. I live about 2 miles from it and it is still there. A very good camp which was upgraded about 10 years ago. Excellent facilities although the staff can be a bit anal at times. I take it someone is going there for exercise?
